PGR Criminally Accuses Dr. JLG and Dr. ZAC, PM Proposes the Suspension of DPM and MNE

Dili, Tempo Semanal 26/09/2010
Whilst the resignation of the Deputy Prime Minister Mr. Mario Viegas Crarascalao is till fresh on the minds of the Timor-Leste public, the Prime Minister Jose Alexandre Kay Rala Xanana Gusmao has recently requested the suspension of two senior members of his government, Deputy PM Mr. Jose Luis Guterres and the Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr. Zacarias Albano da Costa from their positions as ministers, because they have been formally indicted as accused by the Prosecutor General. “Via this letter I inform the National Parliament that formal indictments have been issued accusing the Deputy Prime Minister Mr. Jose Luis Guterres and the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dr. Zcarias Albano da Costa, of the crimes of illegally obtaining financial benefits as a result of abusing their powers/authority, in accordance with article 113 of the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste,” was written in the first paragraph of a letter signed by PM Xanana and sent to President of the National Parliament Mr. Fernando Lasama Araujo on 15 September 2010.

According to the document Reference GPM/IX/2010, to which this newspaper had access, the PM said, “I also want to inform that consequent to the notification of the formal indictment by the Prosecutor General and after having consulted informally with her, she informed that there is no time limit according to article 113 of the Constitutions of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste to effect the suspension of these members of government given that they were authorized to accompany His Excellency the President of the Republic to represent Timor-Leste at the UN General Assembly in New York.”
According to Article 113, line 1 of the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, when a member of Government is definitively accused of a crime punishable by more than two years jail, he or she is suspended from his or his position for the duration of the trial process; and line 2 states that where the alleged crime is punishable by les than two years jail, then the National Parliament shall determine whether the member of government is suspended from his position or not.

Currently the Deputy Prime Minister for Social Affairs, Dr. Jose Luis Guterres and the Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr. Zacarias da Costa are accompanying the Head of State Dr. Jose Ramos Horta in New York to participate in the UN General Assembly. According to Tempo Semanal’s sources from the USA Dr. Zacarias da Costa has engaged in many meetings with his counterparts from other countries like Australia and New Zealand.
This newspaper also tried to confirm with these two members of government mentioned in the Prime Minister’s letter without success. Despite Deputy PM Jose Luis Guterres not wanting to comment on this issue faced by him but he did say with a big heart to Tempo Semanal that, “the law is for everyone and as veterans of the struggle for liberation we have to show a good example.”
“The Pm as much as I want to act according to the law,” said Dr. Jose Luis Guterres.
In the PM’s letter received in the National Parliament on 15/0/2010 PM Xanana proposed, “with nothing further to say, I request the consideration of the National Parliament to authorize the suspension of the two respective members of government from their positions, whilst the trial process is pending.”
Although the PM has written to the National Parliament requesting it take the matter into consideration, on Friday (24/09/2010) afternoon at parliament house, the spokesperson for the CNRT, deputy Hugo da Costa informed that, “Regarding the suspension of the members of government, that is 100% in the powers of the Prime Minister.”
“That is within the Prime Minister’s powers, so we should not give a response because we do not know what the Council of Ministers (CM) has or has not already decided, because we do not know what the issue is,” he stressed.
“Maybe there is this corruption thing either in the Prosecution office or in the Courts, but maybe there are other issues you should go an check carefully there and you should not come and ask us about it,” said Deputy Hugo.
On Thursday (23/09/2010), the leaders of the parties holding seats in the National Parliament met to discuss the proposal of the Prime Minister of the Fourth Constitutional Government to submit the matter to a secret ballot. “At today’s meeting we also discussed the proposal of the Prime Minister to suspend Deputy PM Jose Luis Guterres and Minister Zacarias. But we think it is better to wait until they return here before voting because we have to consider the national interest or the image of the nation,” confirmed Dr. Aniceto Guterres, the leader of the FRETILIN parliamentary group.
This former human rights lawyer informed us that the case involving the employment of Dr. Jose Luis Guterres’ wife with Timor-Leste’s permanent mission in New York, was the subject of a complaint by FRETILIN to the Ombudsman for Human Rights and Justice in 2008. “Form my point of view they breached the Indonesian Anti-Corruption Law No. 31/1999, which is part of Timor-Leste’s legal system and a careful look also reveals that they breached Articles 297, 301 and 302 of the Timor-Lesle Penal Code” said deputy Aniceto.
The report by the Ombudsman for Human rights and Justice was delivered to the Prime Minister last year as was published in this newspaper some editions ago. The recommendations of the Ombudsman were very cutting.
In the Ombudsman’s report of 9 July 2009, he was of the legal opinion that, “JLG and JFC violated Indonesian Law No. 31/1999 on the Eradication of Acts of Criminal Corrutpion, especially article 3 which states:
In paragraph G.3 of his report, beyond breaching law 31/1999, JLC and JFC breached the Indonesian Penal Code, article 421 and 423 which regulates the conduct of government officials in abusing power to favour themselves, family or group or to force others to do something for him or her, his or her family, or his or her group that is against the law.
G.4 JFC, RS and FM as civil servants also breached Lay 8/2004 on the Civil Service, in that although they had a duty to obey their superiors’ orders, as civil servants they should also ensure that their superirors’ orders are according to the law. Because of this JFC, RS and FM breached article 4 on general obligations of the Law No. 8/2004 regarding the Rights and Obligations of Civil Servants.
According to the legal opinion, “ZAC also engaged in mal-administration, resulting in irregularities and illegalities regarding the improper payment of the salary and ‘housing allowance’. ZAC knew that AMV was not a Timorese citizen and was not a career diplomat, and as such was not entitled to receive a salary of a second secretary and receive a ‘housing allowance’. Upon becoming the new Minister for Foreign Affairs ZAC should have immediately ordered the cessation of payments to AMV, but he allowed the irregularities and illegalities to continue for six (6) months, and ZAC himself signed some CPVs paying ‘housing allowance’ to AMV, which caused a prejudice the state. If this conduct was to facilitate AMV, then this act could also be considered to be collusion, but if they were done just because of trust placed on civil servants then these are irregular and illegal acts.
The Ombudsman concluded, “these acts by JLG and JFC was an abuse of power, breaching the applicable law, resulting in irregularities and illegalities prejudicing the finances of the state, for private family benefit. These acts can be considered as acts of collusion and nepotism and ZAC was engaged in mal-administration that contributed to the acts of collusion by authorizing his civil servants to continue paying the salary and ‘housing allowance’ to AMV, without taking into consideration the law or common practice regarding the payment of local staff and diplomats working at embassies. These acts caused prejudice to the state which improperly paid in excess of US$12,000 by way of salaries.
The Ombudsman recommended to, “The Prosecutor general of the Republic investigate this in depth these acts of criminal collusion and nepotism, according to the applicable law based on the powers of the prosecutorial authorities”, and also “The Prime Minister should reprimand the former Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. JLG and now deputy Prime Minister as responsible to these acts, and the current Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. ZAC to rectify the systems in his portfolio area so as that abuse of power does not reoccur resulting in collusion and nepotism for private benefit, or for family interests, especially within the Ministry.
For three years many people have screamed about KKN, and some even accused the PM Kay Rala Xanana Gusmao of shutting his ears and eyes to those accusing him of forgetting his promise during the 2007 election campaign which began on 29/5/2007 at about 1730 hours at the Lospalos football field in Lospalos, the leader of the CNRT party screamed that he would fight KKN and fix the working system in the country.
PM Xanana during his public consultation campaign for the National Strategic Development Program on 2/09/2010 was challenged by youth at the Caicoli Municipal Market which caused the PM’s blood to boil and scream at former PM Mario Carrascalao, “liar” and “stupid” in relation to his statement that three million dollars had been lost by the Ministry of Finance. On 6/09/2010 former Deputy PM resigned and his resignation was accepted by the President of the Republic.
Joao M. S. da Silva Mendonca, a youth washing his vegetables on the side of the road in Aileu said, “I believe that big brother Xanana will clean his government of KKN. Because this leads to loss of the peoples’ money and only makes some people rich.”
“I expect that it is like a sign for other members of government to think that justice will save public funds and ensure that those who want to give the best to only their families can be careful,” Joao expects.
The Prosecutor General of the Republic and her office slowly and quietly but with care has started to investigate a number of cases of KKN in Oecussi, the case of conflict of interest in Pualaka, some cases in the Ministry of Justice, the case of missing money in PNTL and others including the allegations against the Deputy PM Jose Luis Guterres and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr. Zacarias da Costa.
When Tempo Semanal tried to confirm with the Prosecutor in this case Dr. Aderito Tilman last Friday (24/09) at 11.25 but he did not want to comment. Upon arriving at the office of the Prosecutor General’s receptionist asked with a sour face, “who do you want to meet?”
The receptionist heard the request from the journalists in the visitors’ waiting room and then went straight into Dr. Aderito’s office. After some minutes she returned and informed the journalists sitting in the waiting room to inform them that, “Dr. Aderito Tilman does not want to comment on this matter, and you should wait for the court’s decision.”

TL War Veterans Wrote Aust PM Demand Pipe Line and Appeal To Australian Veterans for Support

Dili, 28/09/2010
Today the east Timorese and Australian joint comission on Joint Petroleum Development Area which include the area of Greater Sunrise meeting in Dili. The meeting starting at 09.30 this morning and still going on at this stage. At the mean time there were a demontration through the street of dili from Timor Leste National University Kaikoli to Parliament house to present their their petition to Timor Leste Parliament.

One of the banner carried by those student written, "Mr. Don Voelte, woodside is big, strong and rich company. Is that the reason you vcna step on the poor Timorese right?"
On the 27/09/2010 the National university students have a conference of the Greater sunrise issue and they have stated their support to Xanana's government to bring the pipeline to Timor soil. Not only that the East timor war veterans gathered in Dili on 24/09/2010 demands for pipeline from Greater sun rise. "We veterans and combatants of national liberation ask the Government of Australia to accept the aspiration of the people ot Timor-Leste to bring the pipeline to Timor-Leste so that it can improve the economical prosperity of the people of Timor-Leste and furthering, the already, good friendship and solidarity between our two people," Vasco da gama read out the statement which signed by 17 reperesentatives of the veterans which sent to most of the Timorese leaders include Australian Emb assador to Dili and Australian PM.
“We veterans and combatants of national liberation call for our fellow veterans from the World Veterans Federation and VECONAC to be generous and support our aspiration so that the Pipeline from the Greater Sunrise can be brought to Timor-Leste and assist the economic and prosperity of the people of this country. We veterans and combatants of national liberation ask particularly to the Australian Veterans, which has very strong friendship and solidarity with the people of Timor-Leste shared with pass collective historical values, heroism and patriotism in the second World War.”
The conference resulted 10 points declaration which supported Timor Leste Government to pipe gas from Greater sunrise to TL soil. "We veterans and combatants of national liberation give our full support to the state/government of RDTL to continue firm in the negotiation on on the Greater Sunrise so that we can bring the pipeline to Timor-Leste. Bringing the pipeline is the only aspiration of the people of Timor-Leste that will defend the sovereignity and dignity of the people of this nation," said Vasco da Gama the Veteran comission leader and former Objlatil leader.
They continues that, "We veterans and combatants of national liberation give our full support to state/government of RDTL ‘s decision to reject the Floating LNG and terminate the negotiation of the Greater Sunrise is the pipeline does not come to Timor-Leste, and support to leave the exploitation of this resources be left in the ground for future generation if the pipeline does not come. We veterans and combatants of national liberation considers it is only fair if the Pipeline from Greater Sunrise comes to Timor-Leste because one pipeline (the Bayu Undan pipeline) has gonne to Australia," Those war veterans came from every districts and they have long stand for East Timor Independence appeal to Australian war world II veterans to help raised the issued with their government and Woodside. "We veterans and combatants of national liberation ask the people of Australia and our solidarity groups to demand the Government of Australia, that as a developed nation with lots of other natural/petroleum resources and that Australia has its commitment to help reducing the poverty in the world, asisst the people of Timor-Leste and be realistic in the negotiation on the Greater Sunrise."
The veterans and combatants of the national liberation understood that the pipeline from the Greater Sunrise to Timor-Leste is technically possible to be brought across the the depth of the Timor Trough in the Timor Sea, which the companies have always said that impossible. The veterans and combatants of the na liberation also heard that, based on the result of the studies, bringing the pipeline and building a LNG-Plant in Timor-Leste, which will cost around US$ 7 billion is commercially viable, and  will create a lot of advantages/benefits to the country because it will create jobs, contribute to the revenues of the state, and opportunities for all the people of Timor-Leste to make use of its resources, instead of benefiting the companies alone.
These veterans understood that, the Greater Sunrise, which has big gas reserve is only 180 km from Timor-Leste but around 500 km to the shores of Australia. Therefore, we the veterans and combatants of the national liberation demand that the government uses all its competency under the Constitution of the Republic, follow the Petroleum Act and the Treaties that we have signed to negotiate the pipeline from the Greater Sunrise to be landed in the shores of Timor-Leste.

Breaking News: Vice Prime Minister "Lugu" and Foreign Minister Zac da Costa - Indicted

Vice Prime Minister Jose Luis "LUGU" Guterres - INDICTED
Foreign Minister Zacarias da Costa - INDICTED
The Prime Minister of Timor-Leste, Xanana Gusmao, has written a letter to Fernando Lasama de Araujo the President of the National Parliament to inform him that the Vice Prime Minister (Jose Luis Guterres) and the Foreign Minister (Zacarias da Costa) have both been indicted by the Office of the Prosecutor General for their involvement in crimes associated with their offices and employment acts" said in a letter from the Prime Minister dated 15 September 2010.

In 2008 the Opposition party FRETILIN raised the issues at hand in the National Parliament and requested that the graft watchdog the Provedor investigate the matter.  This was followed up and has resulted in these two indictments.

According to the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste they should now be suspended from their posts in Government so as to answer the charges in court.  A meeting of the leaders of the parties in Parliament who manage the affairs of parliamentary sitting business has scheduled a secret ballot vote on the matter not long after the Vice Prime Minister and Foreign Minister return from New York.

East Timor’s Justice Minister’s Husband Appears as Accused in Dili District Court

At about 09.20 Dili Time, Mr. Americo L. Lopes the husband of East Timor’s Justice Minister arrived in the Court in his luxury car (a Hummer). Not long after the Minister Lucia Brandao Lobato also arrived. There had been two previous hearings in this case in Mr. Americo’s absence. Today is the first time he has come to the court for the hearing of what has become known as The Pualaka Petrol Fuel Company case. Joao Alves and Luis Oliviera, the other two co-owner the company with Mr. Americo have filed legal action in the Dili District court against Mr. Americo and the Portuguese BNU bank in Dili. There are two allegations of falsification of Pualaka Fuel LDA company certification documents representing the company as “Pualaka Fuel Unipessoal”, which are also suspected of being facilitated by the Office of the Notary Public.
The Notary Public’s Office is a department under Minister Lucia’s portfolio responsibility. Mr. Alves and Oliviera allege that as a result of this they were prevented from having access to their joint account with Mr. Americo in Portuguese BNU Bank in Dili.
Last year East Timor’s Banking and Payments Authority (the precursor to the country’s Central bank) found the Portuguese Bank to have acted wrongfully. This led to the removed of the then director, who was sent back to Portugal. Pualaka Petrol Fuel LDA was set up by Luis Oliviera, Americo L. Lopes and Joao Alves in 2008. The company was awarded a multi-million US dollar contract to supply fuel to Government EDTL power station, which led to some allegations of collusion and nepotism.

Mr. Americo appeared as the accused in the court room, whilst Mr. Joao Alves and Mr. Luis Oliviera sat outside the court room. Minister Lucia’s presence was criticized by Mr. Joao Alves as an act of intimidation against the court. After the trial Minister Lucia told reporters that she has taken three days family leave.
The case was adjourned to further hearing with the judges deciding to request that Mr. Artur Jorge, the former Dili Portuguese BNU director give his testimony as the witness in this case in a Portuguese court and that evidence be relayed to the East Timor court hearing this case.

Kemenangan TL Atas Indonesia Bukan Akhir Dari Suatu Perjuangan

Dili, Tempo Semanal
Perjuangan masyarakat Timor-Leste (TL) untuk meraih kemerdekaan dari pendudukan Negara Republik Indonesia telah tercapai setelah hampir seratus persen masyarakat TL memilih Referendum pada jajak pendapat tahun 1999. Namun, kemenangan itu sendiri bukan bertanda akhir dari suatu perjuangan karena TL harus terus berjuang untuk masa depan masyarakat dan Negara TL. Untuk mengetahui betapa pentingnya perjuangan di era kemerdekaan ini, berikut wawancara esklusiv wartawan Tempo Semanal (TS) dengan Wilson (W), salah seorang berkewarganegaraan Indonesia yang pro kemerdekaan TL.
TS. Bisakah anda ceritakan secara singkat, apa yang mendorong anda untuk menulis buku yang berjudul A luta Continua..?
W. Saya menulis buku ini sebetulnya di provokasi karena adanya perjuangan Timor Leste tahun lalu, sebab saya melihat bahwa sangat sedikit sekali buku sejarah yang mendokumetasi pengalaman perjuangan orang Timor – Leste sehingga saya berpikir untuk mencoba dari Indonesia, karena sejak tahun sembilan puluhan di PRD saya banyak berhubugan dengan orang-orang Timor Leste. Dari situlah selama setahun saya mulai mengumpulkan materi untuk menulis sehingga jadilah sebuah buku yang kira-kira bisa mendokumentasikan pengalaman gerakan demokrasi di Indonesia yang bernama Partai Rakyat Demokratik berhubungan dengan kawan-kawan aktivis Timor Leste untuk memperjuangkan kemerdekaan Timor – Timur di Indonesia.
TS. Menggapa judul Bukunya dinamai Aluta Kontinua, tetapi bukan kebebasan atau kemerdekaan yang sudah di capai..?
W. saya melihat banyak kawan-kawan melihat demokrasi dan kemerdekaan seperti akhir dari suatu perjuangan, tetapi saya mengatakan tidak, justru itulah awal dari semuanya dan itu adalah salah satu kelanjutan dari perjuangan di masa lalu, masa kini dan masa depan yang berkelanjutan dan tidak boleh di putuskan. Jadi sebetulnya tidak ada akhir perjuangan kita untuk demokrasi dan juga untuk kemerdekaan Timor – Leste, sehingga saya memberi judul ALUTA CONTINUA agar gerakan demokrasi Indonesia dan juga kawan-kawan di Timor Leste sadar bahwa demokrasi dan kemerdekaan bukanlah akhir dari sebuah perjuangan tetapi awal dari sebuah perjuangan untuk memperjuangkan masa depan. Kebetulan judul itu adalah slogam perjuangan dari seluruh organisasi perjuangan di Timor Leste saat itu, entah itu PST, CNRM, RENETIL, IMPETU dan OJETIL sebab saya yakin ALUTA CONTINUA adalah slogan yang di teriakan dalam aksi-aksi mereka dan saya pikir ini menunjukan bahwa sebetulnya ada satu cita-cita dari slogan itu di masa lalu dari seluruh pejuang Timor Leste baik yang muda, tua, yang di Portugues, Mosambique, Australia, Jakarta dan Dili. Kenapa kita tidak kembali ke ALUTA CONTINUA untuk mengisi Timor-Leste masa kini dan juga menciptakan masa depan Timor – Leste yang lebih baik.
TS. Menurut anda yang menjadi musuh bagi aktivis pro-demokrasi di Indonesia dan aktivis pro-kemerdekaan di Timor-Leste apa sebenarnya..?
W. Saya pikir ketidakadilan ekonomi global yang berdampak terhadap rakyat dari kedua bangsa, yaitu kemeskinan dan keterbelakangan dan sebetulnya itulah musuh bersama yang harus di hadapi oleh para aktivis dari kedua bangsa karena saya pikir hal itu membuktikan bahwa sekarang perjuangan demokrasi dan perjuangan kemerdekaan mempunyai musuh baru yang lebih berat sebab dulu musuhnya jelas Soeharto dan kita bisa bersatu bersama-sama, tetapi sekarang musuhnya ada kemiskinan dan keterbelakangan yang sangat jauh lebih berat untuk melawan di timbang musuh yang kelihatan nyata di depan mata.
TS. Menggapa di dalam buku anda menceritakan juga tentang perang dingin yang terjadi di Vietnam dan Rusia..?
W. kebetulan waktu saya di penjara saya baca satu buku sejarawan yang namanya Anoel Brokman Indonesia I Can From dan di situ saya temukan satu fakta soal Timor-Timur sebab hal itu juga menjadi perdebatan di perang dingin dan justru yang unik antara Mosko komunis dengan RRC yang juga komunis.
Karena adanya perang dingin sehingga di jaman Soekarno, Mosco memintah supaya Soekarno menaneksasi Timor-Leste karena di angap menjadi bagian dari kekuatan imperealis Portugues pada saat itu, tetapi Soekarno menolak proposal tersebut, bahkan tahun 1965 sebelum dia di kudeta, Soekarno mengucapkan pidato yang menggatakan bahwa perjuangan kemerdekaan Timor-Leste adalah satu bentuk perjuangan yang harus di dukun olah bangsa Indonesia, sayangnya Soekarno di jungkirkan olah Pemerintahan Soeharto sehingga dia tidak bisa membuktikan kata-kata itu.
TS. Di dalam buku ini banyak menceritakan juga hubungan anda dengah bapak Xanana Gusmao, Joao dan Lasama ketika masih di penjara, dan juga menceritakan seluk beluk kehidupan anda mulai dari pro-demokrasi sampai bergabun dengan pro-kemerdekaan dan apa yang menguntunkan dua kelompok ini..?
W. sebetulnya yang paling menguntunkan adalah, menyatukan kekuatan untuk menghadapi musuh bersama dan isu Timor-Timur adalah isu internasional sehingga ketika gerakan demokrasi mendukung kemerdekaan Timor Leste otomatis akan mendapatkan juga dukungan internasional dan kita tau persis selama ini internasional basis terhadap orde baru karena mereka adalah pengdukun orde baru. Saya pikir isu Timor-Timur menjadi pintu masuk agar supaya masyarakat internasional menghubunkan isu Timor – Timur ke dalam demokrasi dan yang paling pentin soal nasionalisme yang berkembang di kalangan masyarakat Indonesia dan juga di kalangan aktivis demokrasi. Kita tau banyak aktivis memang berjuang untuk demokrasi tetapi hak determination mereka tidak mendukun Timor Leste sehingga saya bilang ada kontradiksi atau aironik, sebab kita berjuang demokrasi dan bicara soal hak tapi hak mendasar sebuah bangsa kita tolak. Dengan demikian saya mengatakan hegemony nasionalisme orde baru yang begitu kuat mengatakan bahwa Timor-Leste adalah bagian dari teritoriu Indonesia dan itu menurut saya ketika gerakan demokrasi berhubungan dengan gerakan Timor Leste kita seperti menyadarkan masyrakat bahwa nasionalisme itu keliru kalau tetap mengangap Timor – Leste bagian dari Indonesia karena dalam sejarahnya memang terbukti bahwa nasionalisme Timor-Leste bukan bagian dari sejerah nasionalisme Indonesia. Menurut saya problem inilah yang paling penting karena masyarakat luas kebanyakan teregomoni oleh nasionalisme orde baru yang otoriter dan teritoria termasuk Timor – Leste.
TS. Dalam buku ini menceritakan juga kedekatan anda sama bapak Xanana yang begitu erat hingga sampai di kasih ping (penhargaan) kusus pada tanggal 20 Juni 1999 di ulan tahun beliau dan sekarang bagaimana hubungan anda dengan bapak Xanana..?
W. baru kemaring saya bertemu dengan Xanana tetapai tidak melalui jalur protokoler, sebab melalui jalur protokoler sudah hampir lima hari tidak ada kepastian sehingga saya mengambil jalan pintas menunggu Xanana di tempat parkiran mobil Perdana Mentri. Saya yakin Xanana sebenarnya senang inggin bertemu sama saya cuma karena beliau sekarang pejabat tinggi Negara sehingga ada proses protokoler yang harus di lalui dan akhirnya saya tidak sempat bertemu dengan beliau, tetapi saya penasaran masa sih…tidak bisa.
Saya yankin dia (Xanana) senang bertemu dengan saya karena hampir 12 tahun semenjak referendum saya tidak perna ketemu beliau, akhirnya saya tunggu dia di palasio dekat parkirang mobil dan pada saat mobilnya masuk saya berdiri dekat tiang bendera sampai menunggu beliau turun, tapi saya agak khawatir juga jangan-jangan dia lupa dengan saya. Tetapi making dekat dia turung dari tangga sepertinya dia kaget, ini ko…!ada makluk asing yang sepertinya saya kenal lama dan akhirnya dia langsun lari memeluk saya dan mengatakan Wilson akhirnya kita berpelukan begitu lama dan saya senang sekali karena inilah Xanana yang saya kenal hangat. Kemudian kita bicara dan ngobrol-ngobrol hampir 15 menit di depang parkiran mobil sampai Xanana kembali ke rumahnya akhirnya selama 12 tahun saya bisa ketemu lagi dengan sahabat saya Xanana Gusmao yang dulu bersama-sama di penjara. Di penjara kita mengorganisir kegiatan yang paling penting yaitu kompetisi sepak bola karena kita tau saat itu di penjara hampir tidak ada kegiatan untuk para napi sehingga muncul problem kekerasan yang membuat kita estres. Dari situlah Xanana kemudian membuat proposal agar kita bisa membuat kegiatan untuk para napi di penjara yang milibatkan banyak napi akirnya kita melakukan kegiatan sepak bola dan Xanana lah yang terpilih menjadi ketua persatuan sepak bola di penjara dan saya sebagai komisi pertandinganya di liga antar blok di penjara cipinang. Di penjara setiap hari kita mengatur pertandingan antar blok sehinga penjara menjadi dinamis karena ada kegiatan yang membuat napi-napi tidak estres dan mengurangi kekerasan sehingga di malam hari mereka bisa tidur nyenyak karena kecapeyan.
TS. Di dalam buku anda menyatakan bahwa klub-klub pemain sepak bola di cipinan kadan bisa juga mengalakan klub sebaik juventus bagaimana ceritanya..?
W. yah.. itu cok kita disana bahwa klub terbaik dunia atau pun juara dunia kalau masuk penjara belum tentu menan, karena yang di perlukan dalam penjara itu mental bukan teknik.
TS. Apa saja pasar taruhan untuk pertandingan sepak bola di Cipinang pada saat itu..?
W. Yah…beberapa napi kaya yang koruptor biasa taruhannya sampai jutaan tapi kalau kita antar napi-napi taruhannya biasa telur, indomilk dan rokok karena itu bisa di nikmati langsun bersama-sama oleh para napi walaupun kalah atau menang. Tim saya dan tim Xanana selalau berkompetisi karena tim kami yang menjadi tim terbaik, cuma Xanana membeli semua pemain terbaik di cipinang untuk masuk bloknya yang dibeli dengan indomilk jadi ada pemain bola bagus dari blok lain akan di transfer ke bloknya Xanana sehingga bloknya Xanana menjadi juara beberapa kali di cipinang. Sebab di bloknya Xanana gizinya juga terjamin untuk para pemain bola karena di kasih telur ayam kampung setenga matan, fitamin dan susu.
TS. Bagaimana perasaan andah saat bertemu dengan teman-teman aktivis Timor-Leste yang sekarang menjadi pejabat Negara..?
W. Saya pikir itu proses istoris yang harus dilalui oleh Timor – Leste, bahwa kawan-kawan yang dulunya menjadi aktivis menantan Negara orde baru, ketika merdeka mereka harus mengisih kemerdekaan ini dengan mendapat posisi di jabatan politik, parlamen maupun di pemerintahan. Saya kira itu satu kenyataan politik yang harus saya terima bahwa itulah perubahan dari sebuah kemerdekan dan kawan-kawan harus siap memimpin Negara ini di pemerintahan dan juga di parlamen. Saya mengangap Timor-Leste unik karena banyak aktivis memimpin Negara dan ini satu hal yang berbeda dengan Indonesia, walaupun Indonesia terjadi reformasi tetapi semua institusi politik tetap di kuasai oleh orde baru karena tidak ada perubahan.Ketika pro demokrasi yang menyumbankan Soeharto dan menciptakan reformasi tetap di luar sistim tapi di Timor-Leste lain transisi kemerdekaan itu langsun para aktivisnya memimpin negara sebab ada Mari Alkatiri,Xanana Gusmao,Ramos Horta,Lasama dan Mariano dan kita tau trektektor mereke di erah kemerdekaan tidak perlu di ragukan, jadi saya tetap optimis bahwa kawan-kawan semuanya dalam proses belajar dan dalam proses belajar kita selalu ada kesalahan karena Timor Leste tidak ada gurunya.Mereka belajar dari pengalaman dan kesalahannya sendiri jadi saya pikir kita harus adil melihat Timor Leste bahwa munkin ini bagian dari pembelajaran 10 tahun kemerdekaan Timor Leste dan saya harap kawan-kawan sadar kalau ada kesalahan meman harus di koreksi dan kalau meman tidak mampu dia harus mundur sehingga Timor-Leste betul-betul bisa berkembang menjadi Negara yang sehat, Negara yang secara politiknya stabil dan isu-isu demokrasinya bisa berjalan dengan mapan agar tidak mudah di goncang oleh satu provokasi atau kekerasan politik tertentu. Hal inilah yang sekarang saya lihat di Timor-Leste dan saya tidak melihat secara hitam putih seperti beberapa orang melihatnya karena saya pikir ini proses pembelajaran.
Tetapi dalam proses pembelajarannya seperti saya katakan, kalau ada kesalahan harus diperbaiki dan saya kwatir jangan sampai sudah berkuasa kadan sala dia tidak memperbaiki kesalahannya walaupun banyak orang bilang itu sala dan muda-mudahan hal seperti ini tidak beloh terjadi terhadap kawan-kawan aktivis yang sekarang menjadi pejabat di Timor Leste.
TS. dalam penulisan buku ini kesulitan apa saja yang anda hadapi ..?
W. kesulitannya karena sumber-sumber utama di Timor – Leste tidak bisa saya akses sebab tidak ada yang membiayahi jadi sebetulnya saya menulis buku ini berdasarkan arsip yang saya punya dan pengalaman yang saya ingat dan tidak ada dukungan apapun dari orang lain, karena ini pertanggunjawaban pribadi saya untuk gerakan demokrasi dan pembebasan Timor Leste di Indonesia karena itu yang membuat saya bersemangat untuk menulis buku ini.
Meskipung saya tidak bisa menakses banyak sumber di Timor-Leste, tetapi saya pikir kawan-kawan Timor-Leste akan menulis sejaranya lebih lengkap lagi.
TS. Kenapa anda memilih tanggal 4 september sebagai data penerbitan buku ini..?
W. Yah…kita mau mencari satu momentum yang berhubungan dengan sejarah Timor-Leste, karena tanggal 4 September adalah hari pengumuman referendum pada tahun 1999, sebab selama ini justru hari itu jarang di peringati karena selama ini Timor-Leste hanya memperingati 30 Agustus.**end**




Deputy PM Carrascalao Controversy: Bishop Belo Corrects The Attitude of AMP Leader


Dili – During the Indonesian military occupation of Timor-Leste, Bishop Don Carlos Ximenes Belo, was the Catholic Church’s figure who was most critical of the Governor Mr. Mario Viegas Carrascalao regarding assassinations of Timorese during the time when Carrascalao was the Governor of “Tim-Tim”. But now when Mr. Mario Carrascalao is strongly criticized by Prime Minister Kay Rala Xanana Gusmao, resulting in Carrscalao’s resignation from his position as Deputy Prime Minister, Bishop Belo says he is saddened because according to this figure in the Catholic Church, corruption will flourish in Timor-Leste.
"I was sad to hear this (resignation of Mario Carrascalao), because when Mr. Carrascalao was invited to join the AMP government, it was with the objective of fighting 'CORRUPTION': But the 'corruptors' were cleverer! The 'Corruptors' resorted to 'a diabolic strategy' to get rid of Mr. Carrascalao. So that thing people refer to as 'political ethics' or 'political morality' does not and will not exist in Timor-Leste, because many do not want corruption to be eradicated in Timorese society," wrote Bishop to Tempo Semanal via email.
According to Bishop Belo, “in any government, the Prime Minister or the President of the Council of Ministers has the right to ‘reshuffle the government’. Inside the government, minister or secretaries of state have the right to resign. “But I am a bit saddened with what has currently happened in Timor, when I hear those in government publicly calling each other words that hurt peoples’ feelings.”
"I am sad because in our nation 'leaders' call each other 'stupid', 'liar' or 'lazy' in public. This does not create a good 'image' for our society in the world, for our own society, and to our youth and children."
"I am sad because, despite Mario Carrascalao having been Indonesian Governor, he also worked for Timor and for Timorese. I have not yet heard of Mario Carrascalao being corrupt, buying cars, building houses in Indonesia, favoring his own family. He is however a person who can contribute to reducing corruption, but in the end it was he who was accused of being stupid and a liar."
"I am sad because the youth, the children are being taught a negative lesson right now from their leaders, who should be better examples for them on 'manners.' If you as a leader call your colleagues 'liars', 'stupid'; in the future, when these youth and the children end up in government or in the parliament, they will also call their superiors 'stupid' or 'liars' or 'lazy'."
"On all of this I humbly ask: What are we opening schools and universities to do? Educate which generation? Educate a generation to enrich themselves with ethical values, or a generation of ill-mannered and ill educated people? Are we opening them to enable a generation to improve their society with their competence and professionalism, make them people who will respect the common good or a generation of corrupt, a generation of people who are ‘stupid' and ‘liars’?"
"My conclusion is simple: You have to apologize, you have to apologize to the youth and children, you have to apologize to the people who live in the rural areas, and maybe take yourself out from the government, and make way for someone with political integrity, morals, patience, respect, humility, and who is ready to give a good example of governance," Bishop Belo wrote in an email to this newspaper on Friday of last week.
